The Compass Courses Scholarship Program provides entry-level mariners with an opportunity to jump-start their careers. More specifically, the program offers financial aid for those seeking to gain entry into, or continue working in the maritime industry. This program is intended to serve as a gap filler between scholarship programs tailored to youth and their entry to the industry and those that target management level employees. Scholarships will be reviewed upon receipt and awardees will be notified immediately following their selection.

What will be awarded?

Recipients will be awarded the full cost of tuition, or in the event of a partial scholarship, 50% off the price of tuition. The Scholarship will expire 6 months from the date that awardees are notified.
